Last season, I have bet couple of times against Toulouse at home when they had a large handicap and when they were playing without their great fly-half Luke McAllister.
I will do the same for this first match because he is injured and will miss the beginning of this new season. As I said last season, Toulouse has 2 faces, one pleasant with McAllister, one pragmatic and then less able to win comfortably without McAllister. I don't think that it will change this season.
Moreover, there are over big absences for this 1st match such as captain Dusautoir, Picamoles, or Fritz while their best tryscorer Huget and big men Census Johnston will surprisingly and strangely start on the bench.
On the opposite side, Oyonnax has couple of players injured but except Tian, I don't think that it's important, and moreover they recruited solid flankers during the off-season with Missoup, Wannenburg and Fa'asavalu from the Harlequins so they have a better team than last year to my mind.
Interesting thing is that they conceeded only 4 losses at away last season by more than this handicap, knowing that 3 of the 4 losses were against teams who likes to attack a lot while the 4th loss was simply against the champions Toulon, so definitely not the same profile than Toulouse.
So I think that Oyonnax will not lose by more than 16 points.
